In today’s episode, we sit down with legendary investor, Tom Gayner, Co-CEO of Markel Corporation. Markel has been referred to as a “Baby Berkshire”, because it is structured similarly to Berkshire Hathaway, and has produced stellar results.

Tom has been producing investment returns in the high teens for Markel Corp for over 30 years and was kind enough to give us incredible insight into his investment strategies and philosophies.
